Symbiosis - Original

The genus lupinus is derived from the Latin “lupus” in the mistaken belief that they “wolfed” (depleted)  nutrients from the soil. In fact, the opposite is true: lupines (and other members of the fabaceae or pea family) actually fix nitrogen from the air to create compounds that enrich the soil! Poppies are hearty plants that can establish themselves in challenging environments – from roadsides to rocky outcroppings. Once established, other plants can take hold. In this way, these plants help each other to thrive in a colorful symbiotic relationship.
